Signals from one of EgyptAir Flight 804’s black boxes were detected


The actual information about signals reception was confirmed. This news occurs a week after airplane manufacturer Airbus had detected signals from the plane’s Emergency Locator Transmitter. Search teams haven’t found yet the aircraft’s fuselage. The batteries powering the flight recorders’ locator beacons are certified to emit high-pitched signals for about 30 days after they get wet. The flight data recorder gathers 25 hours of technical data from the airplane’s sensors, recording several thousand distinct pieces of information. Among the details investigators could uncover: information about the plane’s air speed, altitude, engine performance and wing positions. Deployable recorders have long been used in the military. A series of accidents over water including the Egyptair disaster and wider safety issues are likely to be discussed at a meeting of global airlines in Dublin this week.
